Spurs approach Juventus over record-breaking Paulo Dybala move

Tottenham have reportedly made contact with Juventus over a possible deal for star player Paulo Dybala. 

The move will signal a new era of some sort for Spurs, who finally opened their transfer wallet, having had a totally quiet summer transfer last time out. 

Dybala is valued at £80m by the Turin-based club, but Spurs believe a deal can be struck for the Argentine, who had an unimpressive season in 2018/19. 

The 25-year-old is considered among the best attackers in the world and was Juve's main man upfront until they signed Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid. 

He has since fallen down the pecking order, and with the Italian giants having signed more players and being linked with a host of others, there is an understanding that Spurs might get their man. 

However, If they push through with the deal, they'll have to break their transfer record for the second time this summer, having spent £65m for Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon. 

Dybala's contract runs until 2022 and he is thought to earn around £120,000-a-week, which should not pose a significant problem for Spurs, with Harry Kane and Dele Alli currently paid more.

Spurs only have Harry Kane as their senior striker, having allowed Fernando Llorente and Vincent Janssen to leave this summer.
